Brashton Satele is back at LB

About how he wants to play LB, Brashton Satele said:
“That’s my house, I feel comfortable there. I guess Coach McMackin appreciated it and considered taking me back. … My goal was just to get in shape for the season and do what was best for the team.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Satele weighed close to 265 pounds during spring practice while practicing at middle linebacker along with Mana Lolotai. After the Warriors closed the spring, Satele was listed as a defensive end on the Warriors’ depth chart with Lolotai slated to start at middle linebacker. Satele and Lolotai then spent much of their summer working with trainer Chad Ikei in Scottsdale, Ariz. Ikei, a Hawaii product who runs Ikei Sports Performance, also lists NFL players among his clientele and put the linebackers through a daily regimen that had them at the gym from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.”

About working out with Chad Ikei, Brashton said:
“That routine is killer. My goal was just to get in shape for the season and do what was best for the team. If I moved back to middle linebacker, I would. If not I’d play where coach wanted me.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Now at 238 pounds, Satele said he’s at his lowest playing weight since his freshman year at UH, while Lolotai — who could still be a starter at outside linebacker — also returned in improved condition.”

About how Mana Lolotai was with him in Arizona, Brashton said:
“It was a good thing that we were there pushing each other.” (HSB)

About learning from Sol and Adam last year, Brashton said:
“I learned the position and I got to learn from the best.” (HSB)

About the most significant lesson he learned from Sol, Brashton said:
“You have to be the man, you have to make those tough calls. You just have to take charge of that defense because they’ll need somebody to look at.” (HSB)
